I am going to be doing a unit on poetry. Anyone have any ideas/pictures of bulletin boards I can use as influence in creating a bulletin board? This is for a grade 12 HS AP English class. I always find creating bulletin boards a difficult task . Do any other male teachers have a difficult time as well? I see the women in my department love creating their bulletin boards and I dread it. I feel mine are boring. They usually consist of quotes, pictures of places I have been and stories. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

"Unlock the Doors to Poetry". I made six small brown rectangular doors out of construction paper. Each door had a round yellow door knob, a different emotion word on it (humor, love, questioning, etc.), and a piece of clipart depicting the emotion (I will try to find the clipart I used and send you that).

I displayed student poetry in the middle of the board in between the doors (three on each side of the board). I put a different color of construction paper behind each students' poem to add a bit of color.

Lastly, I hung yellow paper keys (find at the dollar store or print off clipart) in the corners of every other piece of poetry.

I did take pictures, I will go look for them and postthem too if I find them.

I hope this helps and you are able to visualize it!

The pictures are not all that great! I did a better job on the board last year, but never took pictures.

Hope you can use some of it!

Have you ever heard of the book Hip Hop Poetry and the Classics? It is an excellent book that teaches the unit of poetry to hs students with the classics that we are required to teach as well as some of the more urban type of hip hop music that is poetic in nature. The students learn how to identify different types of poetry in both classics and hip hop songs. Also, you could use some of these ideas to dress up your bulletin board to get the kids interested. You could choose on Hip Hop person and one classic poet and place a work from each on the bulletin board and then have kids comment on how they are alike and different.
